You’d think an organization as big as WWE would have enough infrastructure where the talent would be able to approve their merchandise. Or, that there would be a department that makes sure the merchandise couldn’t be construed as offensive.
A few years ago WWE had to recall their Hideo Itami shirts because the image was of a rising sun. The Rising Sun flag was flown for Japan while they were apart of the Axis Powers in WW2. After quick backlash the company took it down.
It appears that another incident has popped up with NXT superstar Jordan Myles. He has gone to Twitter to voice his displeasure.
First a tweet that Myles RT’d stating why the shirt is offensive and racist.
Now a series of tweets ending with WWE pulling the shirt and changing the design.
As you can see WWE changed the design, Myles commented on the matter.
